Blackmore’s Night To Re-Issue ‘Shadow Of The Moon’ Friday

March 9 — Blackmore’s Night’s 1997 debut album, Shadow of the Moon, will get the re-issue treatment Friday.

The record is scheduled for re-issue in a new 25th anniversary Edition through earMusic. The re-issue will feature the original album in its entirety with fully remastered audio converted to high definitional audio. The album’s cover artwork is the same but has also been restored and reworked.

The record will re-issue on a variety of platforms, each of which will include two previously unreleased acoustic songs, ‘Spirit of the Sea’ and ‘Shadow of the Moon.’ The physical platforms will also feature a bonus DVD that presents a “making of” documentary.

As an added celebration of the record’s re-issue, two copies of the album’s Limited Black LP Edition pressings will feature “Golden Tickets.” The tickets will give their owners an original Fender Ritchie Blackmore Olympic White Stratocaster guitar signed by Blackmore and his band mates in Blackmore’s Night. More information on the tickets and contest is available here.

Late last month, Blackmore’s Night premiered the re-worked version of ‘Wish You Were Here’ as another way to build anticipation for the album’s re-issue. The song’s video is streaming here.
